Fish Fry with Sesame Oil (Gingelly Oil)

                                    Fish fry are always exotic. I got a valuable hint from my chithi(mother's younger sister). And it is, while making masala for fish fry, add sesame oil instead of water. 

                  On adding the sesame oil. the smell is reduced while frying the fish. Sesame oil gave an enhanced taste and tender texture for the fry.

Prep Time 20-25 minutes (including marinating time)
Cooking Time 10-15 
minutes (changes depending on quantity)


6-8 nos Sliced Fish Pieces 

1 tbsp Sesame Oil
1/2 tbsp Red Chilly Powder
1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder

For shallow frying Cooking Oil
As per Taste Salt


1) Wash the sliced fish and let the water to drain off. I usually wash fish using salt and turmeric powder added.(see note for procedure). Take the ingredients needed for making the fry.

2) Mix  chilly powder, turmeric powder and salt using sesame oil. Now marinate the fish in the mixture.

3) Let it marinate for 20- 30 minutes. 

3) Shallow fry the fish and enjoy.

                       Procedure to wash fish
  • I usually wash any type of fish adding salt and turmeric powder. When washing with salt and turmeric they both act as an antiseptic. Hence improved health benefit.
  • First I wash normally in running water for two times to remove impurities.
  • Then by adding salt and wash again.
  • And finally with turmeric powder. Hence clean fish.
